Jacob’s Creek Retreat
Given the eponymous wine is such an export success, it’s somehow fitting that this retreat on the banks of the famed creek is blessed with so many European touches. It’s a genuine hideaway, with a choice of luxurious private suites. Log fires, antiques, exotic spa ensuites and king-sized beds adorned with plump pillows and quilts strike a romantic note. Another bonus is the option of sampling the retreat’s own wines and the host’s culinary creations. Outside there are garden features galore to admire: rose arbours, courtyards, Italian fountains and giant French-style urns – not to mention majestic red gums flanking the creek itself.
